Why should I get a permit?

Working without a permit can be putting your family and others at risk and will result in fines of hundreds, if not thousands of dollars if caught performing work without one. In addition with current real estate disclosure laws this can also lead to delays in transferring properties or in getting loans for the purchase or refinancing of a property. In some cases insurance companies may not cover damage claims for non-permitted work.
